    What changes would you like to see in the crowdfunding in 2017?

    Hey, guys! New year is coming. Do you have any ideas, what to wait from the crowdfunding next year? What projects are worth investing and what to look for?

    I think the future is AR and videos in 2017. Kickstarter is starting to support it, so it's growing the community.

    I would like to see the trend of focusing on recurring donations continue. Some of the major players have been implementing, and even focusing their campaign model around, recurring payments, but recurring payments are often a small percentage of the overall funds raised in a campaign or by an individual or organization. It’s time we moved towards more sustainable asks. It’s different between funding a single product or project to helping to fund continued research, advancements, and versions for what is often a minimal ask when given on a monthly basis.

    There will lots of changes and if we talk about UK then :
    -Non-domestic investor will become increasingly active in UK
    -Global hunt for income will drive prices rise in UK
    -Reduced house price growth in the mainstream markets
    -More opportunities to unlock development potential

    First suggestion would be to remove estimated delivery dates for products. Most are done by people who have never delivered anything, so by definition they would not know how long it would take. And of course, most are very, very wrong.

    Second, for products that must operate, is to require a working prototype to be sent to KS or whoever first, to be tested to see if it actually works. Of course this would reduce new campaigns by 99%, so it would never happen.

    I'd LOVE to see a assurance system where people can optionally register and if they break the agreement, can be held accountable by a arbitrator.

    This would allow someone to make claims about a product, get the IP protection, produce the product and be held accountable for fraud if needed.

    Clearly something that is missing from the equation.

    An those that register, could be placed much higher in searches.

    New year, New President but Old crowdfunding. No one really care about that!!
    Things will either not change or change a bit which of course, can be negligible.

    For a noncrowdfunding knowledgeable person, I would like to see a campaign manager assigned that walks you through the entire process of building your crowdfunding from the idea to actually posting the campaign. There are a lot of technical tasks an assigned campaign manager can easily help you overcome.
